We were a family of six (my wife, three kids 13, 17, 21 and my daughter's boyfriend), we got the the hotel after a very wiry day of long travels. We got two rooms on the parking and on the road. the rooms were very small, we couldn't pack all four kids together, so my youngest moved in with us. We didn't had the energy to argue with reception on rooms that night, but the day after after long explanations we were told (around noon) we could move the kids to a much larger room in a much better location. This room was with separate bedrooms and so much more adequate. My wife and I stayed in the road/parking room for the second night as well.
The appearance of the good rooms and inner areas of the hotel are much more appealing and I guess I would have a much better review if we were getting those in the first place.
Breakfast is OK-, not much of a selection.
I did saw an armadillo near the room at night, so that was great...
